Implementation of Java SE

Any thoughts on this - 

Our infrastructure group is currently assessing the implementation of Java SE on each machine as part of an effort to mitigate potential Oracle license complications, 

The infrastructure group is currently evaluating the usage of Java SE on each machine to ensure compliance and avoid any Oracle license issues. Additionally, they are assessing their responsibility regarding the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) bundled with SoapUI or determining if this aspect falls under the jurisdiction of SMARTBEAR

  • Hi - I hope that you are Doing good !!

    It's noted that in version 5.4.0 of SoapUI, the documentation states, "SoapUI now uses Java 1.8." However, in version 5.6.0, there's a mention of "Support for OpenJDK 12."

    This indicates that the transition from the Oracle Java 8 implementation to OpenJDK occurred in the 5.6.0 version released in 2020.

    It's worth mentioning that Oracle revised its licensing policies after JDK 11, prompting many organizations to transition to OpenJDK implementations for their Java-based applications

    Hope this helps and happy to assist further !!

    Thank you very much and have a fantastic day!
    Warm regards
